Not for use on rusty joints
I thought readers might be interested in this article I saw in the Jamaica Gleaner while on holiday in Barbados.
'Kingston, Jamaica – The Medical Association of Jamaica (MAJ) and the Pharmaceutical Society have cautioned arthritis sufferers against the use of WD-40 – the penetrating oil spray that serves as a cleaner, lubricant and corrosive solution for use on metal – saying improper use could result in inflammation of the skin and lung.
‘Doctors are urging the public to refrain from using WD-40 for their arthritis.
‘MAJ president Dr Alverston Bailey said users could possibly develop conditions such as acute contract dermatitis, bronchitis or pneumonitis.'
